      Indica/Vista - Alloy & Tyre Upgrade Options

      my stock pressures are 24psi in front, and 28 behind. I usually run higher(~30+).
      or should i stick to the stock pressures?

      The turbo Indicas (and Indigos) have stickers with vague pressures on them. 24 and 28 are way too low - the V2 Indicas are recommended 30F/28R. I run with 32F/30R these days on OE size 165/65 R13 tubed tyres.

      I ran 30 PSI all around on a brand new Indigo LX TDi that I ran in for a neighbour ( ) a few years ago - that seemed right while 24/28 seemed too low.

      Indica/Vista - Alloy & Tyre Upgrade Options

      Hi Nikhil,

      Thanks a lot for the detailed guide. The OE Amazers on my Indica are gone with 40k running and was looking to upgrade to 185/60 R13 using the tyre upsizing guide link that you put up.

      I got a quote for 2950/- per piece on the A539 and I am leaning towards Yokohama

      The question now is that , can I run these on the stock rims which are 4.5J x 13 or do I need to upgrade the rims. I found out that the PCDs for Ikon and Indica match so the Ikon's rim may fit (could be 5J x13, not sure), but Ford asks for 1200 Rs/- per piece

      Please advise.

      2950/- is a decent price. You can run on 4.5j rims, but it is advised to have slightly wider than that. I doubt the Ikon's will be 5j.

      Thanks Nikhil, I just checked an Ikon from my office, it runs 175/70 R13 on 5J x 13 rims. The rim looked OE coming from Wheels India. I heard from one tyre dealer that I could pick up rims from an area called Pudupet in Chennai but this place is where, amongst the car junk we also get the stolen items sold. I dont want to encourage this business.

      Wheels India told me they dont do retail and I have to make the request to Ford, Ford seemingly builds in a margin when they quote 1200/- per rim. I am now lost, is it unsafe to run 185/60 on a 4.5 rim ? If so I will stick to the OE size. Yoko A539 165/65 R13 I got a quote for Rs.2450/- per piece.

      Thanks again.

      Just curious. Why are you so desperate on 185 ? Why don't you get a good set of 175 tyres ? These will fit on your 4.5 rim.

      I need more ride comfort + my car runs on non-existent roads for about 3 months a year when me/family take it to my native villages (paternal & maternal) - the 185/60 would give me a bigger/thicker side wall than the 175/60, infact with 175/60, I would lose around 2 mm of the sidewall thickness as compared to 165/65, plus the speedo/odo would overread with the 175s (very small margin though).

      I am not sure if there are 175/65 tyres in 13 inches, but there would still be more than 2% variation. So 185/60 is the best match for an upsize for me (1.3 - 1.4 % variation).

      Indica right? I think 175/70 R13 will fit comfortable.

      indivic, if possible, upgrade to 14" rims. hrag did so and found the ride much better.

      Even I've noticed my turbo handles potholes much better than a friend's xeta
